Jack's Problem with Giants

Why should it matter that a size-30 shoe was found outside of his window? Jack has gone to school where he has been taught that giants do not exist and does not want to look like a fool climbing a beanstalk.

Like Jack, evolutionists have been confronted with some hard evidence from eastern Montana – the discovery of soft tissue and flexible blood vessels inside the thigh bone of a Tyrannosaurus Rex*. And like Jack, they have been to school where they were taught that dinosaurs have not existed for seventy million years. It doesn’t matter that the Genesis record of creation can explain such a finding. They do not want to look like a fool by suggesting that their method of dating might be in error.

Responding to fellow evolutionists, one stated, “Finding these tissues in dinosaurs changes the way we think about fossilization, because our theories of how fossils are preserved don’t allow for this.” Imagine Jack saying, “Finding this shoe changes the way we think about the effect of weather on shoes.”

Jack needs to strongly consider the location of the big shoe. Likewise, evolutionists need to consider the location of this surprising bone – entombed in porous sandstone, hardly a vacuum seal. Realizing that biological material is soon broken down in the presence of ground water, an impartial investigator would quickly rule out the possibility of tissue remaining soft and squeezable after a million years. It has been suggested by the discoverer that more such bones may exist but have not been found because they are not being looked for - preconceived ideas are hindering the search. But now, more soft tissue has been found – in other T-Rex samples and in two Hadrosaurs – all of the “Cretaceous-period”.

Now, Jack we can excuse. After all, it’s just a story. But what about all the “knowledgeable” scientists who stubbornly cling to textbook age-assignments, even when faced with such glaring impossibilities?

Even Darwin admitted difficulties with his own theory: “To suppose that the eye with all its (complexities) could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.” (Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species, P. 75)

For the truth-searcher who is open and interested in considering the evidences for creation, there are some great sites to explore, like www.answersingenesis.org and www.icr.org. There’s far more than a giant to be found. Of course if you're into giants and novels based on Biblical history that pique the imagination, check out The Ninth Generation.

*2005 discovery by Dr. Mary Schweitzer, reported in Science magazine, describes T. Rex bone tissue as “soft,” fibrous,” “flexible,” and “resilient”. MSNBC Science Editor Alan Boyle reported on July 24, 2007, “Today, paleontologists are still stunned – not only to find material that looks like dinosaur cartilage, blood vessels, blood cells and bone cells, but to see the stuff in so many different specimens.” It has come to light that similar findings have been found elsewhere (but not widely reported). Other reports were published in 2007 and 2009 (Science). See article, “Dinosaur Soft Tissue Issue Is Here to Stay” (Sept. 2009 Acts & Facts, ICR).





If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Your analogy is an excellent one, thank you. I think that Darwin's comment is certainly noteworthy, in that it is the beginning of a trend among evolutionists which continues today. Great job, keep it up.

Writing apologetics is a very difficult and daunting task. One of my fondest dreams is to be able to write apologetics. I wish you much success. The reader will want to know the dates the soft tissue was found, and maybe a quotation from the person who found it, or at least who did. Love your reference to Jack & the Beanstalk.

I love this. The humor is very good. (satire)
